Margaret Benita Cavanagh
Thanks for making the memorial for Margaret Benita Cavanagh!
She's the sister of my great grandmother, Mary Cavanagh.
Could you tell me where you got the name Mae for her sister? I'd thought she was named Mary.
I've made the memorial for Mary here:

Harold Wall 145057412
Hello Rita,

The Harold Wall at Harvard Grove is not the son of William Martin Wall and Mary Wall. He was an African-American born in Columbus, Ohio in 1871 to John Wall and Georgia Washington.

I guess you will need to search further to find the correct Harold.

Ellen Eccles
I did not see a Find A Grave for John's wife, Ellen, so I have included one in the Yantic Cem. Find A Grave page, which includes some additional information I uncovered in my initial research of Ellen Eccles.

john f oconnell
O'Connell buried in Colchester

My name is John Francis O'Connell. I am working on my O'Connell Family Tree and had a few questions.

I saw your entry, Find A Grave Memorial# 28361755, for The O'Connell's and found your email address there.

Michael J and Mary A Sullivan O'Connell are my Great Grandparents. Michael V O'Connell is my Grandfather.

Are you related to this branch of O'Connell's?
For Michael J O'Connell, you show "Son of John & Mary Malacy/Melvey ". Did you find those names in Ancestry?

Let me know if you have questions for me. My father Harry O'Connell is alive and well in CT. I have lots of O'Connell info as well.

Eugene and John Humai

Thank you so much for posting these pictures. Eugene Humai is a distant relative. His father was John Humai who was the son of Casimir (Charles) Humai. Casimir is my great grandfather's brother. The family never communicated after immigration. Andrew (who went by HUMAJ) went to Illinois and Casimir went to Connecticut. Are you related to the Humai's? If not, do you know of my Humai's living in that area? I have the family traced back to the 1790's in Poland living near Radomysl Wielke. Thank you so much for filling a gap in my family history.

RE: Eileen Derby Hewston
Thank you. I am not related. She used to live in our neighborhood with her daughter. I added her sister to our church's cemetery and thought you might like to add biographical info from her obituary.

Happy Holidays!
